Great replacement for my Oculus Rift, SDE is hardly noticeable anymore, you really have to make an effort to see it, the resolution is really good, the FOV is about the same as the Oculus, but because of the sharp image you notice this less .
What is less, if you have an X570 motherboard you have to put in a little more effort to connect the Reverb as mentioned, I was well prepared and bought a USB 3.0 PCI Express Add-on card before, I should have installed it sooner because that would have saved quite some time, so highly recommended.
The detail in the headset is amazing. No more problems with the screen-door effect at all. FOV is not great, but good enough. I had to find the correct USB connection and play around with settings to get it so it wouldn't crash often. But once I got everything set up and configured it worked perfectly. The graphics are top class. Playing Half Life Alyx is the best gaming experience I've ever had, and I've been a big gamer since the 1990s. Despite many claims about poor hand tracking, my experience is fine. VR Ping Pong plays really well. There is a community site with all the tips and tricks you need, such as which batteries to use and how to avoid crashes (https://reverb.danol.cz/troubleshooting/).
My PC: Ryzen 5600x, RTX 3070 FE, 16 Gb 3600/16 CL Ram.
I highly recommend this headset with a high-end PC. VR in high graphics is a game changer.
I am happy with this headset, although I still have not configured all the applications that I will use with it to get the best performance. This headset requires a powerful PC and GPU. I'm using an i7 8700K CPU and GTX 1080 GPU and it's struggling so I've had to lower the graphics settings in all the apps I've tried to create a comfortable viewing experience. There's still work for me to do in that regard, so if you don't have state-of-the-art hardware just be prepared to spend a fair amount of time configuring things to get decent performance. There are minor issues, like the cable clip that won't stay in place (I use a Velcro strap instead), and there's no in and out adjustment to get your eyes closer to the screens, but the only thing I REALLY Unhappy about it is the little "sweet spot" meaning the image gets very blurry at the slightest bit of looking left or right. This really hurts the immersion and is the main reason why I returned the original Reverb I bought. This one is slightly better, but still unacceptable. I haven't tried any other headsets except the Oculus DK2 (developer kit), which doesn't have this problem. But resolution is essential to me, as is price, and I can't imagine getting a better headset for that money. I don't use the Controllers much. They seem fine to me, but I have nothing to compare them to. In short, overall it's worth the price with great resolution, comfort once tuned correctly, great sound and decent Controllers; but be warned that the "sweet spot" and blurriness when looking left or right ruins the immersion and requires constant adjustment of the headset. Overall still worth the price.By Anonymousposted on 06/04/2021
I bought the HP Reverb G2 as an upgrade for my original HTC Vive which has been heavily used for the past 4 years. It was immediately clear that the G2 is more comfortable and has an exponentially higher resolution. The Controllers took some getting used to, but the ease of tracking inside out makes moving from room to room much easier to manage. Tracking is rarely an issue, but a few (mostly older) games and programs don't translate the controls very well and require manual mapping. Windows Mixed Reality adds an extra layer of functionality, but I spend most of my time in SteamVR, where the G2 still works perfectly. I was concerned that the open-air audio was too loud for evening use, but I was impressed with the sound quality and the surprisingly low amount of audio that "leaked" my family members near my VR setup were a nuisance. Another minor problem is that the headset stays "warm" (temperature) even when not in use. It seems the only way to fix this is to unplug the USB cable when not in use. One last thing to note is the hardware requirements: you'll need significant setup to get the most out of this headset. I was lucky enough to upgrade to 30X0 graphics late last year, before inventory became impossible. I tried to use the G2 on my older 1080ti rig and the frame rate at full resolution sometimes faltered. As the current generation of hardware becomes more available, this becomes less of a concern. Overall I am very happy with this headset. I used my Vive quite often, but the weight of the headset and the limited resolution limited me to how long I could wear it. The G2 doesn't have any of these issues, so I find myself spending a lot longer in each VR session.By DuaneLposted on 06/04/2021
